If my family and I are having chicken tenders or fries, you can bet that I am reaching for the honey mustard.

I always love a good mustard, but the combination of sweet honey, dijon mustard and a little creamy mayo is a classic for a reason — it’s delicious!!

Honey mustard is very versatile and pairs with so many different things. From proteins, to veggies and even as a salad dressing.

Read on to find all the different uses and the recipe for my favorite homemade honey mustard recipe!

Honey Mustard Recipe Ingredients 

  • dijon mustard
  • honey
  • mayonaise
  • lemon juice (or white vinegar)
  • cayenne pepper — just a pinch!!

You more than likely have all the ingredients for this homemade honey mustard sitting in the kitchen! 

Some people use a combination of regular mustard and dijon mustard. You absolutely can if you prefer it that way.

However, I find full dijon mustard provides the best flavor and creates a superior flavored dip.

How far ahead can I make Honey Mustard sauce?

Weeks! The great part about this homemade Honey Mustard sauce is that it will last for weeks in the refrigerator. 

To be completely safe, I should say you should only keep it two weeks in your refrigerator.

However, I usually check my expiration dates on my ingredients and if they are far in the future, I feel comfortable keeping my honey mustard for up to a month. 

Just make sure you use a clean jar, with a lid, and that you keep it refrigerated!

How to Serve Honey Mustard Sauce

You can use Honey Mustard in so many delicious ways. My favorite is as a dipping sauce for my bisquick sausage balls recipe (as seen above!) or chicken — particularly my favorite crispy Dill Pickle Chicken

  1. a dip chicken nuggets, tenders and fries
  2. spread inside sandwiches or wraps
  3. a dip for fresh vegetables
  4. as a dressing for salads (just add a little extra vinegar to thin it out!)
  5. a marinade/glaze for grilled or roasted chicken or pork
